Had a few drinks at a bar in this piazza. Good for people watching. Nice happy atmosphere on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Families and couples strolling by. Good choice of bars and eateries

It is the most tourist orineted square in the old town and is quite large and lined with a number of restaurants and some interesting buildings and definitely worth a visit.
